Good Friday: Has He Forsaken Thee? (John 16:16 & Matthew 27:46)
Sermon preached via YouTube livestream during pandemic lockdown. **Unfortunately, the stream cut out briefly right at the beginning. The words that cut out are these:
"How ought Christians to react to God when He seems to be “far away”? It’s a fair question, isn’t it? Various times in life, things seem dark. They seem dry. They seem empty. And we wonder, has God forsaken me?"
